The Most Popular Dog Names in Australia

Although our dogs’ names used to be heavily inspired by pop-culture (think Yoda, or Lassie), these days our dogs seem to have names that are much more…human! While this could provide less embarrassment at the dog park, you might find some unexpected attention when trying to call your dog!


What are the top five dog names for males?

According to Mad Paws, the names most often shared by male dogs across Australia are…
